Postcards below courtesy Grant Walker, CA

** New**
I have added "hotspots" on the Signs, that I can read.
 (note- some signs are illegible and no hot spot on them)
Also some of the buildings I have identified with a hotspot around them.
Note- Not all buildings are identified.
Move your Mouse over the picture, slowly, and you should be able to read
what the sign says, or the name of the building if there is a hotspot there..
If you add my site to "Compatibly View settings" under the "Tools" button, in IE
you will see the words appear as you mouse over the pictures.
It may or may not work in some browsers.

If you don't see any words appear on the mouse over,
 try clicking once on the sign or building, wherever a hand symbol appears,
and you will go to an index, below the picture, for the whole story.

Those using Touch Screens, sorry,
 you need to click to see the write up below the picture
Another reason I hate touch screens!

Disclaimer
I am an Amateur Historian, and Genealogist.
I use every source I can find, old newspapers, census, archives, etc.
I do a quick search for the names on these pages.
Therefore I do NOT profess to have 100% accurate information.
Use my info as a clue to do your own research.
I am not related to these folks, nor do I have hidden info.
I encourage everyone to visit their local Museum,
or buy a local history book for more info.
I attempt to connect people with their ancestor in these places.
If it works on just one person, per page, it is worth the time it takes me.
I do not charge for access to my pages,
I do not have any Ads on my pages.
Please "link" to my page from Facebook, etc.
Please do Not copy the pictures, or text on any page.
Please do Not ask to use pictures etc. on Facebook.
A "link" to my pages, does the same thing.
Just copy the hyper link, URL, shown in your browser above,
and paste that into facebook etc.,
or copy the links I have on the left side.
That is the honest and descent way to to do it!

Duplicates online?
Note- You will see some of the same pictures,
on other Archive / Museum sites online.
(Without my watermarks, and copyright information obviously.)
Reason- Most of these photos were commercial postcards,
and multi copies were made and sold.
All have different writing on the back is the difference.
I don't include all the backs to save bandwidth, but have them in my data.
